How to effectively ask for what you want //already new title

 

To be effective is to be methodical in your approach. Take a deep breath, trust in yourself, and believe in the intention of your asks, then follow these steps:

 

FAST First Action Steps to Take:

    1. Write down three things you want from people right now but haven’t been asking for. They can include things as small as a sale from a new customer or as large as a raise from your boss or more attention from your husband.
    2. Let go of any fears, embarrassment, or shame you have about asking for things.
